Due to the summer break and vacation time, especially in Europe, we haven’t had a chance to address this - Marc-Andre had suggested a tools call on this for after EuroMPI and then we’ll know more (we need to get tool implementors to the table who are not part of the WG).
Personally, though, I fear you are right with your assumption, but I am happy to be proven wrong.
